Jackson Shines In Pro Bowl

DeSean Jackson had six catches for a team-high 101 receiving yards and a pair of touchdown receptions as the NFC All-Stars lost a 41-34 shootout to the AFC All-Stars in the Pro Bowl.

As the NFC tried to come from behind on their final offensive drive, Jackson was the intended target of Tony Romo's pass that was intercepted by James Harrison. The AFC earned a pair of first downs which then allowed them to run out the clock.

Jackson's second touchdown pass - a 58-yard strike early in the third quarter - came from Eagles teammate Donovan McNabb. That score put the NFC ahead 24-17, but the AFC answered with 17 straight points to take control of the game. Jackson's first touchdown came on a 7-yard screen from Aaron Rodgers in the second quarter.

McNabb finished as the NFC's leading rusher with 26 yards on four carries. In the air, McNabb was 3-of-10 for 78 yards with the touchdown and an interception.

David Akers had a stellar night, certainly aided by his longsnapper Jon Dorenbos, scoring 10 points as he connected on both of his field goal attempts - with a long of 47 yards - and four PATs.

On defense, Asante Samuel had an interception, Quintin Mikell had three tackles and Trent Cole had a tackle for the NFC squad.
